Beanscene coffee and music houses is offering music fans 50 free songs- the equivalent of five free albums – from a vast database of nearly two million tracks with the launch of a new subscription-based service allowing music lovers to download tracks in the popular MP3 format – the only digital music format compatible with all digital music devices, including the iPod.
Powered by eMusic, the world’s leading retailer of independent music, and featuring music from 8,500 of the world’s top independent labels, Beanscene is unrivalled in providing music to consumers interested in material outside the commercial mainstream. The new service means that, overnight, Beanscene has the potential to become the biggest independent music retailer in Scotland.
Beanscene caters to music lovers of all types in the underserved 25-54 demographic by cultivating a vast catalogue from the world’s top independent labels that spans every conceivable musical genre.
Gordon Richardson, Beanscene founder, said, ‘Customers fed up with homogeneous music and services focused only on mainstream pop, can now discover a wealth of music created to transcend rules, boundaries and commercialism.
‘By logging on to www.emusic.com/beanscene music fans can explore the vast catalogue of groundbreaking independent music which plays on any digital music device. We are delighted to introduce the most diverse catalogue of music in the world to independent music fans who have been crying out for a download service that caters to their needs.’
Beanscene’s extensive music library features established and emerging artists in every genre: rock, jazz, hip-hop, blues, classical, country, folk, electronic, world and reggae; including familiar names such as Johnny Cash, Bob Marley, Ray Davies, Miles Davis and Paul Weller, established rule-breakers Basement Jaxx, Bjork and The Fall, and breaking new artists like The Rapture, The Pipettes and Four Tet.
The 50 free songs offer comes with absolutely no strings attached. On registering for a 14-day trial of eMusic, customers can immediately access and download their 50 free songs. With no commitment to subscribe on an ongoing basis, music fans can cancel their subscription within the trial period – but can keep their 50 downloads.
